Jamie Foxx to Star in The Happytime Murders

CelebNMovies247.com has learned via Birth.Movies.Death. that The Happytime Murders will be directed by Brian Henson and possibly star Jamie Foxx.

Here is the plot line:

The story follows puppet stars of an iconic TV show The Happytime Gang who are some of the biggest celebrities around. But off-camera, the family friendly cast leads the kinds of lives that would make a tabloid writer blush. When the Happytime Gang stars begin to be mysteriously murdered, two mismatched detectives – one a type-A, take-no-prisoners human with a secret and the other a crass, hard-drinking puppet with a connection to one of the victims – must put aside their differences to stop the killings and catch the culprit, all the while trying to resist the temptation to murder each other.

Deadline has gone on record saying that this movie is not only happening but Jamie Foxx is negotiating to star in it. The negotiations are early, so Foxx may not actually take the role, but I think the larger story here is that this movie could even exist. Particularly that it could exist on that Jamie Foxx level.

The project sounds quite awesome and with Foxx in this film it makes us want to see it more. Jamie is such a versatile and talented actor we think that he is the perfect star to take on a film such as this.

What do you think about Jamie Foxx starring in the Brian Henson helmed project? The Happytime Murders movie is sounding promising, but will you be rushing out to see it when it hits the big screen?

Weigh in and let us know what you think?
